Title Down the Lane
Description across from the school and church The yard was nicely kept and was a gathering place for friends and relatives There was a clothes line at the edge of the lawn When there was squabbling, instead of yells to stop that, as at some homes, we were quietly told there were sacks that could be pinned together and hung on the line, if we couldn't be agreeable we'd be put into them until we tired of squabbling It never happened Uncle Royal and Uncle Clifford were into radio. They stretched wire to our house and to others, as well as over to the church so some programs of community interest could be listened to by all who wanted to hear, when my uncles were home to work the radio Election night in 1928, their home was full of people Our family was there. Politics are usually taken seriously in small towns Sterling had 400 people The results started coming in and some tempers flared Some big, fat man handed me a button. It was quickly taken from me 1 don't remember who took it, but it definitely wasn't one my grownups wanted to see on my dress Witnessing politics at that level and intensity contributed to my interest in politics. Again the example was set by Hansens willingness to share their home in election night excitement. Later on in years, my parents drove seventeen miles each way to vote. They never missed voting no matter what level of government the election was about. I learned in 1928 that it was a privilege, as well as a duty, to cast your vote Just another example of the influence of the Hansens making a difference in the lives of the people of Sanpete County by being good neighbors May 15, 1948, Hansens celebrated their 60th Anniversary. Still living were two of Anna's brothers, four sons, two daughters, thirty-six grandchildren and twenty great-grand children On November 21, 1948 Anna had a stroke and died Hans died October 3, 1953. Certainly Hansens way of life, their honesty and sharing, contributed much to the character of those lucky enough to know them, helping Sterling to be a peaceful community DOWN THE LANE Jessie Oldroyd Senior Third Place Personal Recollection "Down the Lane is still HOME SWEET HOME to all of us who have lived or do live there." said Gayle Rasmussen, as he told me of his love for the place of his birth. "Down the Lane" is the south part of town and its close area around which several families of boys and girls grew up in Fountain Green. "Tell me about it,"I asked "What made it so special other than your birth place?" 8
